Being a "first timer" I wasn't sure what to expect at an "all inclusive". I was not disappointed. For the dollars we spent to secure our reservation here and flights which also included transportation to and from the airport it was definitely worth it. We obtained our reservation through Costco. The grounds were spectacular, the employees were gracious, kind and...

Bladimir and Julio provided great bar service at the jacuzzi area! Mediterranean restaurant was absolutely wonderful, it is very classy, food was delicious and service was great. Extremely disappointed WiFi was $15.00 a day, could be a huge consideration when planning our next vacation destination.

We are very much looking forward to our next stay at El CId. When we return in September/October 2017 we are bringing my parents as I know they will love the resort just as much as we did. It was such a fun week. Food was fantastic and staff was awesome. We will definitely request David as our Butler again...

Make dinner reservations with concierge right after check-in for best chance of getting an earlier seating. They have menus for each restaurant & you can reserve for multiple days. This was my 2nd stay here. Accommodations are very nice and all staff are so friendly. I'm looking forward to returning in the future. I like taking the walk into the...

Great resort. Excellent staff - very friendly. Smaller resort easy to get around. Very clean and well manicured. Loved the food in all the restaurants. We preferred the breakfast buffet in the Italian restaurant - less crowded great selection. We preferred the infinite pool and sitting under the palapa on the beach. Ocean water is not the best, very rocky....

Our annual gir's trip took us back to El Cid for the 6th time. As usual, the staff is what makes this our favorite place.

“We love staying by the infiniti pool. We paid a good amount of money to upgrade to that area this year and were not warned of the construction noise that began at 7a each day and lasted until 6pm. The only solution we were offered was to move to a different room across the resort (and have to pay for the nights we were by the infiniti pool). We have had to move rooms before and it is a huge hassle. We asked to speak to a manager of the front desk and returned for 3 days in a row, but he was never available. This was the one downfall of an otherwise good trip - it would've been nice to have been warned or treated better as a loyal customer. ”
